HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Stanley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Stanley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Stanley property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Stanley House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor check the serviceability of the gas installations?

A local surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation for instance, in addition to gas associated fixtures like associated asbestos. Fittings or covers won't however be taken off. The system won't be tested at all. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns about gas or if you suspect a gas issue, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older barn conversion in Stanley. What effect will the property's slate roof have on repairs?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can concern buyers. Properties built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Stanley listed buildings. If you are uncertain, speak to your building surveyor for more information. Erected between 1446 and 1809, Station Road, Thatched Cottage in Stanley is a traditional house of the time.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Concerns about asbestos are common. Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in Fuse box for example. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a single fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken never to remove asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. Getting rid of asbestos can be dear but absolutely must be conducted by professionals. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on possible asbestos during the Stanley survey and should suggest further investigation.
